Supporting Sheffield’s Young Carers

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Meg Munn MP is patron of the Sheffield Young Carers and recently visited to meet new Managing Director, Sarah Gowan, and Katie Borland, Fundraising Officer.

Sheffield Young Carers are a charity who offer support to children and young people aged 8-21 who live in the city and care for someone at home who has a physical or mental illness, disability or a substance misuse problem.

Although funding issues continue to be a worry, Meg was delighted to hear that Sheffield Young Carers have secured a grant of over 69,000 from BBC Children in Need. The grant is spread over three years and will help provide group and one-to-one support to young carers some as young as eight from all over Sheffield.

Meg was also impressed to hear that Sheffield Young Carers’ partnership with VOYCE (Views of Young Carers Explained) is going from strength to strength. VOYCE have recently produced a resource which helps schools to identify and support the young carers amongst their students.

Meg said:

“Sheffield Young Carers are an organisation I have been involved with for a number of years and it’s always good to touch base and see how things are progressing. Support for young carers was recently recognised as an important issue during the passage of the Care Bill, and I am delighted to have an organisation in my constituency that does so much for young people in desperate need of support.”
